New Music: David Guetta ft. Che'Nelle - Titanium (Japanese Edition)

David Guetta has decided that the Japanese and the rest of the Asian music market deserved to feel the contempt that most of us, North Americans radio listeners experience on a daily basis. The torture and contempt I speak of is his overplayed song 'Titanium'

Well David G has re-made the song with Asian singer Che'Nelle and it pretty much sounds a lil better then the original (Sia voice is weird)  with but with Japanese parts.

P.S. God I hate this song so much!

New Music: Kimberly Wyatt (Formerly Of The Pussycat Dolls) - Derriere

(Pic Source:

Former Pussycat Doll and dancer extraordinaire, Kimberly Wyatt has decided to wade into the solo pool once again after leaving her last group Her Majesty & The Wolves.

Her new solo single is an urban pop cut called 'Derriere', which is french for your booty but yeah, french lessons aside the track is one of those songs that's suppose to make you get wild at the club. I'm honestly not to sure about the song and I might grow to really like it after a few more listens but as of now its just a 'meh' kind of song.

New Music: Trina - Pour It Up

The "Baddest Bitch", Trina jumps on Rihanna's hood anthem 'Pour It Up' for an amazing remix that should be official in my opinion but God knows that will never happen since female artist regrettably tend to not work with each other (especially when they become super successful). If a remix is made RiRi will probably feature a bunch of male rappers like Eve did with her 'She Bad Bad' Remix.

Artist Promo: The Neighbourhood Cover and Mash-Up, Destiny's Child & Justin Timberlake

Almost everybody who listens to pop and r&b is feeling some form of nostalgia with The return of Justin Timberlake and the reuniting of Destiny's Child, and indie band The Neighbourhood are no exception.

The quintet band stopped by Radio1's Late Live Lounge on Thursday, January 24th and played a Destinys's Child and Justin Timberlake mash-up of both acts hits, 'Say My Name' and 'Cry Me A River'. Listen to the interesting and creative take on both songs below and tell me what you think.

Just For Laughs: Tumblr Pic

I don't know who made the picture and I can't remember what Tumblr page I even saw it on but whatever the case is its hella funny.

New Music: Alcia Keys - Brand New Me Part 2

Alicia Keys has decided to remake her song 'Brand New Me' with a more lively version dubbed Part 2, which samples Crystal Waters 'Gypsy Woman (She's Homeless)'.

I much rather the original piano driven ballad version instead of this remixed version.

New Music: Iggy Azalea - Whatchu Lookin At

There is just something about Iggy's voice that I love. Anyway a new song titled 'Whatchu Lookin At' has surfaced to the web recently and I can't figure out whether its a  mixtape single or a stand-alone leaked track. Whatever the case is I'm always ready to hear new Iggy music.

Music Video: Mia Martina - Heartbreaker

CP Records songbird, Mia Martina has popped up with a fresh new music video for her song 'HeartBreaker'.

 I guess its safe to assume this single will be for her forthcoming sophomore project since this song does not appear on her debut album Devotion. I'm sure in the next few months all the details will be revealed but for now enjoy her heavy electronic dance floor ready song 'HeartBreaker'.

New Music: ft. Britney Spears, Diddy, Hit Boy, Waka Flocka Flame & Lil Wayne - Scream & Shout (Remix)

So in attempt to attract listeners of the urban genre, has teamed up with Hit Boy, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne, and Diddy to remix his electronic pop song 'Scream & Shout'.

This remix is just noise and it could have been better if they just had the original song on the new beat. Its 2013 as well who the hell puts Diddy on their tracks still? He's utterly useless and all he adds to the song is extensive amounts of cursing! I Surprisingly didn't mind Waka Flocka's part that much so they should kick everybody else off the track and just leave Waka's verse.

P.S. Don't worry pseudo-thugs, Diddy makes sure to mention its the "Super Black Man" remix at least twice so you all can feel comfortable listening to a song that features Britney Spears.

New Music: Nikki Williams - Glowing

I finally found out who sings this song and the artist name is Nikki Williams and the song is called 'Glowing'. I thought she was a Canadian musician but she's American and other then that I don't got to much info on her except that I really like her song.

Music Video: Serena Ryder- Stompa

Music Video: Kat Deluna & Dr. Costi - Always On My Mind

Music Video: Colette Carr ft. Kev Nish - Why Are You Leaving?

Artist Promo: 2CELLOS ft. Naya Rivera - Supermassive Blackhole

This is the first time I've ever seen anything like this. European Cello playing duo aptly called 2CELLOS (Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser) cover pop songs but they only use their Cellos for the cover with the occasion assistance of a vocalist. For their Muse covered song 'Supermassive Black Hole' they're assisted by Naya Rivera from Glee. If you watch Glee (I glimpse it fleetingly) then you'll recognize her as the angry Lesbian cheerleader. Anyway check out the video below.

'Supermassive Black Hole' appear on the duo's sophomore album titled In2ition, which you can purchase on iTunes.

Music Video: Vita Chambers - Fix You

 (Pic Source:

So I've been hearing this song on the the radio for that past few days and I've obsessively tried to find out who sangs the song. I had a feeling she was Canadian and at one point I told my co-worker that I suspected the singer was Alyssa Reid but they quickly shot that down.

 So today Z103.5 played the track and I finally found out the singers name , which got me to do a little research. The singer is a 19 year Canadian (I was right) vocalist of Bajan (Barbados) descent named Vita Chambers and the songs is called 'Fix You', which I knew already due to the songs chorus.

According to Wikipedia she was discovered by the same team (SPR Records) responsible for giving Shontelle and Rihanna their musical start. Anyway check out Vita's awesome song a nd fresh new video below.

Music News: BARS 2.0: Episode #1

If your a hip-hop head and love hearing clever rhymes and fresh witty deliveries then BARS 2.0 is for you! BARS is an on-line series that debuted in 2008 and it  featured some of the dopest freestyles from upcoming emcees in New York. Four years later the series executive producer Donny Goines, CEO of Ink Different Inc., Artists.MTV ( and Co-Executive Producer Jake Hart joined forces to bring BARS 2.0 which is nationwide this time around. Excutive producer Donny Goines had this to say about the artist that appear on BARS series.

 “You can’t buy your way on BARS. Your record label cannot secure an appearance on this series. All talent is handpicked by myself at my sole discretion. The word ‘bars’ to me means lyricism, clever wordplay, and amazing punchlines and as an emcee myself, I will continue the tradition of hip-hop I was raised on."

 If you are interested in appearing or would like to know more information about the series, please contact Sanchay Singhal at

Music Video: Nicole Scherzinger - Boomerang

A 'Boomerang' is exactly what Ms. Scherzinger is. They toss her away but she returns right back with just a much momentum and enthusiasm as before. As is the case with her effervescent and empowering new single 'Boomerang' off of her forthcoming untitled (for the moment) album. Check out the visually captivating piece below.

Yes 'Boomerang'  is kind of generic but I actually like the song and the video but maybe I'm being biased since I'm quite fond of Nicole. Its definitely not amazing comeback material but its not as terrible as Justin Timberlake's 'Suit & Tie'.

P.S. Last time I checked Britney Spears did not invent the visual effects of cloning one self in a music video (See's. 'Scream & Shout' ) and if critics wish to bring up that argument that Nicole's 'Boomerang' video is copying Spears then one only needs to mention that Rihanna did it before both of them in her 'Where Have You Been' video. Now who's copying who? Damn Britney STANs!

New Music: Aaliyah - Quit Hatin'

A new extremely unfinished sounding and overproduced track from Aaliyah leaked to the web a few days ago (Jan 16th). The song is called 'Quit Hatin' and no one sure if its connected to that abominable Drake produced, posthumous album that has not received any of Aaliyah's direct family's blessings but it seems likely that it is.

The song is kind of all over the place and at some points you can barely hear Aaliyah's soft vocals because of everything that's going on with the heavy drum beat. I'm not going to lie though, the song would be kind of good if they simplified the beat and cut back on some of the drums and other sounds.

Music Video: George Nozuka - Don't Go

Up and till now I was unaware that Toronto native, George Nozuka was working on new music but apparently he has and on January 7th he released his sophomore r&b based album, Beautiful, which is on sale now on iTunes. I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that George, released a music video for his lead single 'Don't Go', which you can watch below.

02. Runaway    
03. Up to You

09. I'm iLL     

10. You Are the Reason    
11. It's Love That's All

New Music: Alex Gaudino ft. JRDN - Playing With My Heart

Canadian singer JRDN jumps on Italian DJ, Alex Gaudino's electronic house beat for their collaboration, 'Playing With My Heart', which I assume is set to appear on the DJ/producers sophomore album, Magnificent.Check out the club ready track below.

New Music: Georgia Reign ft. Raheem DeVaughn - Feel Like A Woman (Prod. By Adonis Shropshire)

Atlanta seems to be the focal point for upcoming hot talent and if you don't believe me then do some research, which you can start here with up and coming singer/songwriter Georgia Reign's new song 'Feel Like A Woman (Remix)' featuring Raheem DeVaughn.

The grown and sexy 'Feel Like A Woman', produced by Grammy award winning producer Adonis Shropshire is set to appear on Georgia's forthcoming mixtape, Dope Boyz Love Me due this year.

Music Video: Jharee Stephens - 4 Page Letter (Aaliyah Cover)

Kris Stephens isn't the only singer with Stephens as their last name to pay tribute to Aaliyah. Sixteen year old Atlanta Georgia singer and songwriter, Jharee Stephens also made a hot cover of Aaliyah's cool song '4 Page Letter'. Watch the video below.

Follow Jharee Stephens on Twitter @JhareeStephens

New Music: Kris Stephens - One In A Million (Aaliyah Cover)

I first saw and heard of Kris Stephens on T.I. and Tank's song/music video, 'Compliments'. I remember writing "Who is Kris Stephens? She sounds promising" on that post (see post here).

Well on January 16th (Aaliyah's birthday) I found out who Kris Stephens is via She's an upcoming R&B artist jointly signed by T.I. and Tank. Check out her hot cover of the late Aaliyah's 'One In A Million'

P.S. Make sure you get to the 2:40 mark because the arrangment there is dope.

New Music: Kelly Rowland - Kisses Down Low & Number One

Kelly Rowland is killin it! I've always favoured Kelly out of all the Destiny's Child girls because she has consistently brought nothing but amazing to the table whenever she releases new music. Her last album Here I Am (July 2011) was great from start to finish and now I'm super excited for the follow up album, Year Of The Woman.

So far two new tracks titled, 'Kisses Down Low' and 'Number One' have leaked from the upcoming project. Both of these songs share very similar sounding Mike WiLL's produced beats so its safe to assume one of these songs is probably a demo and won't make it to the final stages of Kelly's upcoming album.

Whatever the case is both of these songs are urban r&b and they sound current unlike some other artist who can't seem to stop living in the past with extremely dated sounding songs. Anyway check them both out below and just ignore

UPDATE: 'Kisses Down Low' has been confirmed as Kelly's next single. You can see the official single cover above.

Music Video: Ashlee Simpson - Bat For A Heart

I've never been an Ashlee Simpson fan and I can honestly count the amount of songs that I like from her on one hand. 'Bat For A Heart' is her new 2013 single and it unfortunately won't be added to the list of material that I like from her.

The video is pretty boring and the song is equally boring. I don't know if any one else has noticed this about a lot of musicians images recently but there has been a rise in this so-called new-age faux-indie look that so many musicians  have adopted. I'm guessing its their sad attempt to blend in with this generations major buyers who frequently haunt the web on sites like Tumblr and Instagram. Dear I call them emo hipsters or whatever the hell they call themselves but you can clearly see that Ashlee's trying to pander her music to that crowd by making this dreary vulgar mess.

Wow 2013 seems to be shaping up to be a year of bad come backs.

New Music: Lil' Kim - Pop That Coochie

"First rap bitch to rock Chanel!"
I remember the first lyrics that I ever remembered was to a Lil Kim track, which is kind of disturbing when you actually listen to Queen Bee's explicit lyrics but anyway since then I've had an affinity to hip-hop royalty.

So I was more then excited to hear her new track 'Pop That Coochie', which I'm sure will have tons of booties twerkin in the clubs and deservedly so since the song is hot and yes Lil' Kim is reminding all her critics/rivals that before your fave did she already done it.

Old But Gold: Happy Birthday Aaliyah

Today is the birth date of talented r&b/pop musician Aaliyah so what better way to honor the late singer then remembering her outstanding accomplishments from the past.

Aaliyah debuted in 1994 with her first album Age Ain't Nothing But A Number, which was heavily connected to her mentor at the time, R-Kelly.

I must admit I overlooked most of her debut era and truly started to become interested in Aaliyah after her groundbreaking 1996 sophomore album One In A Million, which was mainly written and produced by my favourite artist at the time Timbaland and Missy Elliot. The trio made golden and futuristic music that stood out from the rest of the r&b pack.

Aaliyah quickly rose as my favourite vocalist after hearing her sexy slow burner, 'One In A Million'. The combination of Timbaland's amazing beat making and Aaliyah's smooth silky vocals completely blew me away and to this day continue to. Below are a list of a few of my favourite standout Aaliyah tracks from the 90's.

Aaliyah - One In A Million (1997 - One in a Million)

Aaliyah ft. Ginuwine - One In A Million (1997 - Sprung soundtrack)

Missy Elliot ft. Aaliyah - My Best Friend (1997 - Supa Dupa Fly)

Aaliyah - Hot Like Fire (Album Version) (1997 - One in a Million)

Aaliyah - Hot Like Fire (Timbaland Groove Mix) (1997 - One in a Million)*My Favourite Aaliyah song*

Aaliyah - If Your Girl Only Knew (1996 - One in a Million)

Aaliyah - 4 Page Letter (1997 - One in a Million)

Nas ft. Aaliyah - You Won't See Me Tonight (1999 - I Am...)

Music Video: Tyra B, Dondria & Bliss - I Just Died

Singers Tyra B, Dondria, and girl group, Bliss have teamed up to cover Amerie's track 'I Just Died'.  I don't know how this awesome collaboration came about but these girls killed it and I honestly prefer their version to the original Amerie version.

Bonus: Check out the original version by Amerie below from her debut album, All I Have (2002). 

Which version do you like better?

Music Video: Medina - Boring

New Music: Destiny's Child - Nuclear

Destiny's Child has re-united for one new track titled 'Nuclear', which will appear on their upcoming compilation album, Love Songs, which only features one new track.

'Nuclear' was definitely not what I was expecting but I was a pleasantly surprised none the less. The track is sleek and current sounding even though it has some older sounding elements to it. I can get down to this so they get a thumbs up from me. I hope they make a music video as well because them just appearing together again would be epic.

New Music: Ciara - Wake Up, No Make-Up

CiCi drops a hot new urban track, which will feature on her label mate, Futures upcoming mixtape, Future Presents F.B.G.: The Movie.

'Wake Up, No Make-Up' has this grimy or gutta as one would say vibe to it and I could picture Gucci Mane or Waka Flocka Flame dropping a verse on the unfinished sounding track. Check it out below.
